    Jack Welch must have been very pessimistic about pessimists, or better very ignorant. So many of the “greats” have been pessimists. Like the poet Leopardi, for instance. Darwin, Heisenberg, and so on.

  • So true because your thoughts impact your feeling, feelings impact behavior and so the pessimist gets nothing done. So I am changing how I am thinking about having to grade 26 more papers. I will enjoy reading them and feel great about my students and myself! Something to be thankful for.
